Out of the total electrification of 1017 Rkms, 286.4 Kms fall under Telangana, 133.7 Rkms fall under Andhra Pradesh, 546 Rkms falls under Maharashtra and 50.8 Rkms pertains to Karnataka jurisdiction of SCR. The state-wise details of the Electrification completed o­n the Zone during 2022-23 are as follows:

·286.4 Rkms pertaining to Telangana region of SCR comprises of sections like Bhavanapalem – Sattupalli; Manoharabad – Nizamabad; Mahabubnagar - Alampur Road; Kosai – Ambari; Jankampet - Basar.


·133.7 Rkms pertaining to Andhra Pradesh region of SCR comprises of sections like Dharmavaram – Kadiri; Aravalli – Nidadavolu; New Piduguralla – Savalyapuram; Alampur - Kurnool City; Gooty Bypass cabin.

The electrification of rail lines helps in providing seamless movement of trains by avoiding change in traction power and reducing enroute detention of both the coaching and freight trains. It helps in improving the average speed of the trains and hence more trains can be introduced in these sections due to the enhancement of sectional capacity. It also provides an environment-friendly means of powering the trains with zero carbon emissions, while saving fuel costs at the same time.

Shri Arun Kumar Jain, General Manager, South Central Railway congratulated staff & officers of the Zone for the excellent teamwork and dedication in executing the electrification works. The General Manager stated that the pace with which the electrification works have been carried out has not o­nly helped in achieving record electrification but has also earned recognition at the National level. He said that the major portion of the SCR network is now electrified and the Zone is progressing swiftly towards achieving 100% electrification of its existing broad gauge lines over its jurisdiction.
